PROVIDENCE – Larry Harris has been around college basketball long enough and when word came down Sunday that University of Rhode Island men’s basketball coach was being released from his contract and Harris and fellow assistant Pat Clarke wouldn’t have their contracts renewed, he wasn’t surprised.
“I was more disappointed than anything,” Harris said. “[Baron] has done a good job there and it’s the old analogy – when a guy is down let’s kick him.”

PROVIDENCE - The old adage is defense wins championships.
The Narragansett girls basketball team will find out for sure Saturday afternoon.
Using an aggressive three-quarter court trap, the Mariners forced 27 turnovers and in the second half turned most of them into points as Narragansett outscored Moses Brown by 22 points in the final 12 minutes, 40 seconds in its 55-32 win Tuesday night in the Division II Semifinals at Rhode Island College.
The Mariners move on to the D-II final Saturday at the Ryan Center at 4:30 against Classical, which beat Johnston 38-37 in early game Tuesday.
